OUT­RA­GEOUS Sexy in Black Does It Again!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Carnival Fri­day in Saint Lu­cia has never been the same, not since the in­tro­duc­tion of Out­ra­geous Sexy in Black by The Wave 94.5 sev­eral years ago. The sta­tion, known for do­ing things some­what dif­fer­ently, sweeter and with much flair, over the years has helped to kick off the fi­nal carnival week­end with an ex­plo­sive and epic event. And this year is ex­pected to be no dif­fer­ent.

Out­ra­geous Sexy in Black, is the “must do” event for carnival. The ex­pe­ri­ence it­self is as much about the mu­sic that drives carnival, as it is about the fash­ion and, of course, the drinks and gourmet ex­pe­ri­ence. Not to men­tion the am­bi­ence which is ex­pected to be am­pli­fied with a new venue, the Pi­geon Is­land Na­tional Park.

So yes, Out­ra­geous Sexy in Black will come to life on Fri­day July 14, 2017 and will fea­ture some of the big­gest names in Soca from Saint Lu­cia and the re­gion. The 2017 in­ter­na­tional Soca Monarch out of Trinidad and Tobago, Voice, will be tak­ing to the stage with his two huge hits “Far From Fin­ished” and “Win­ner”, among oth­ers. Also on the SIB stage next Fri­day are Ul­ti­mate Rejects with their 2017 Road March and monster hit “Full Ex­treme” so you know they will be jam­ming still. Nailah Black­man will be bring­ing her workout en­ergy to the stage as well as Sekon Sta with “Kings and Queens” and, of course, “The Best”. Just in case you missed him at a pre­vi­ous SIB, Olan­tunji, the man with the moves, the voice and the hits is back again this year. With a pow­er­ful reper­toire that in­cludes “Win­ing Good”, “Ola”, and “Oy Yay”, ex­pect to be thrilled yet again.

From Saint Lu­cia, King Arthur will be do­ing it “Over and Over”. Young DP will be bring­ing the ‘queen of the carnival’. Mys­te­rio is com­ing to ‘cel­e­brate’ and Subance will lead the charge for the Den­nery Seg­ment with “Bad in Bum Bum”.

Or­ga­niz­ers have promised more sur­prise acts from Saint Lu­cia, Bar­ba­dos and Trinidad & Tobago so it might be a good idea to get your tick­ets early so as not to miss out.

Re­mem­ber, it’s Fri­day July 14, the sex­i­est Fri­day for carnival. Gates open at 7 pm and ac­tion starts at 9 with the best DJs and hype men in the re­gion. VIP park­ing and a shut­tle ser­vice is avail­able so you don’t have to worry about get­ting to the park in style and com­fort.

Re­mem­ber, too, that a lim­ited num­ber of VIP tick­ets is now avail­able ex­clu­sively at The Wave. Reg­u­lar tick­ets can be pur­chased at all Cell Out­lets, The Wave, Shoe Re­hab, Kaycees, Quick De­liv­ery and Steve’s Bar­ber Shop.
